How to Gain a Following

I began twittering. After each twitter I submit, I observe what reaction I get. In my last twitter, I mentioned that I got accepted to a local College, for their CISCO CCNA certification program. I immediately got several responses from Twitter about new people now "Following" me. When I visited each of the profiles from my new followers, I noticed that most of them had some connection to CISCO. One person is selling Belkin routers. Another is offering CISCO certification seminars. Since I am interested in new certifications, at the moment, I chose to follow the seminar guy. I do not want to follow just anyone. I want TWITs that I can relate to.

remote Box of files

I just added a new applet to use with my LinkedIn and Twitter accounts. http://www.box.net provides a simple easy to use interface to upload and organize your files online. I have uploaded my resumes and reference letters. The files and folders can be shared or kept private. I'm not ready to share yet. But, for now it offers an easy backup location for files that I often need to send out. Can be handy if I'm away from home and do not have my computer or SAN disk with me. I know I have a remote copy on the Internet.
